A slip ring can be used in any electromechanical system that requires unrestrained, continuous rotation while transferring power and / or data from a stationary to a rotating structure. A slip ring is also called a rotary electrical interface, commutator, collector, swivel or a rotary joint.

The AC6098 is a commercial slip ring capsule that features a 4 inch through-bore and a compact 8.13 inch outside diameter. The through bore provides routing space for hydraulics, pneumatics, or for a concentric shaft mount. This slip ring is available in four lengths, from 4.6 to 14.5 inches (depending on the number of circuits required). It can be manufactured with 1 to 72 signal rings or 1 to 24 power rings. This “stacked module” approach allows us to quickly assemble the exact number and type of circuits that our customers require. Unlike most competitive units, the AC6098 transfers low level control and data signals. In addition, signal / data circuits can be combined with power circuits all in the same assembly. The slip ring can run up to 250 rpm.

The AC6098 slip ring with through bores uses our fiber brush technology which offers several advantages over conventional slip ring contacts including multiple points of contact per brush bundle, low contact force per fiber and low contact wear rates. In addition, fiber brushes do not require lubrication and produce virtually no wear debris.
